Give Your Eyes the Care They Deserve

What To Do If You Have an Eye Emergency

First things first. Don’t panic! Staying calm is the best way to help you think straight and help those around you to remain calm. Often, it’s not necessary to go to an emergency room for eye emergencies. In fact, the vast majority of people who go to the emergency room for eye care could have received treatment from their local optometrist instead.

If you’re unsure whether you’re experiencing an eye emergency, give us a call immediately! Delay may increase the risk of serious complications and may result in vision loss.

Until you see your eye doctor or seek urgent care, avoid the following:

  • Don’t try to remove an embedded object out of your eye
  • If your eye is injured, don't press on it or rub it
  • Dry cotton and sharp instruments such as tweezers should never be used on the eye.

Whether you've had a workplace accident or an at-home incident, our eye doctors are here to help

Went to this location for the first time for a long overdue eye exam. The staff and doctor were very... friendly and attentive. There is a good selection of frames to choose from. Doctor explained in detail what he was looking for in the exam and it was very informative! Glasses arrived much quicker than anticipated. I would happily return to this practice for my optical needs.

First of all, let me say. The staff at this store rocks!! Everyone was super easy going and had no p... roblem answering any questions I had regarding the two pairs of glasses I purchased. Julia is the manager/technician that took care of me when I came in, I too cannot say more great things about the way she handles business! She makes sure you are 100% informed and 100% satisfied with your vision and glasses or contacts before you leave. If it was possible for a 10 they would have it. I'll be back!!

We are new customers from going for years and tears to America's Best where we thought we were getting the best deal... I can assure you we were not. Glad I gave up there and went to Eye Care Specialties.

Eye Emergencies FAQs

What is considered an eye emergency?

Eye emergencies are anything that may cause permanent damage to your eyes or vision without timely intervention from an eye care professional.

The most common types of eye emergencies include:

  • A blow, poke or other trauma to the eye
  • Sudden loss of vision in one or both eyes
  • Chemical spills in the eye
  • Foreign object embedded in the eye
  • Sudden appearance of light flashes or floaters
  • Contact lens lost in the eye
Does an eye infection require urgent care?

Symptoms of an eye infection typically include itching, burning, redness, crusty and watery eyes. See a Sable Ridge eye doctor if your symptoms last over 4 days or if you experience intense pain, redness, blurred vision or light sensitivity.

What should I do if a foreign object enters my eye?

Most of the time, a person can easily remove debris from the eye by repeatedly blinking to get the debris out. If that doesn't work, you can wash your eye with saline (sterile salt water) to flush out any dust and dirt from your eye, or use streaming tap water.

However, to scratch your cornea while attempting to get an object out, which can cause further site-threatening complications.

So the best thing you can do in this kind of eye emergency is to get to your eye doctor in Sable Ridge as soon as possible.
